Big Ten Indoor Championships Tickets on Sale

Tickets for the 2010 Big Ten Men's Indoor Track & Field Championships to be held at the University of Minnesota Fieldhouse on February 27-28, will go on sale to the general public today, Gopher athletics department officials announced.

All-session tickets are priced at $12 for adults, $7 for students and seniors, and may be purchased online at, in person at the athletics ticket office in Mariucci Arena, or by calling 1-800-U-GOPHER or 612-624-8080.

"With just 1,500 all-session tickets available, we fully expect that the championship will be a complete sellout," Minnesota associate athletics director and championship manager Marc Ryan said. "As a result, we are encouraging fans interested in attending what we believe will be one of the nation's finest indoor track & field competitions of the 2010 season to purchase their tickets as soon as possible."

The all-session ticket includes admission to both days of the championship. Competition is slated to begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27, and at 9 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 28.

Single-session tickets, if available, will not go on sale until the week of the championship on Monday, Feb. 22.

The Minnesota men's track & field team will be out to defend its Big Ten Indoor title. The Gophers ran away with the 2009 Big Ten Indoor team championship with 135 points.

The 2010 Big Ten Women's Indoor Championship takes place the same weekend at Penn State.
